    Potter Stewart doesn't get on TV much these days.

    A while ago, when asked to define pornography (or, possibly it
    was obscenity?) his response was something like, 'I can't define
    it, but I know it when I see it'.

    So, his expert supporters could conclude from this that Potter
    Stewart was a just and righteous person who spoke the truth
    with conviction.

    Experts from the opposition, however, could infer that Potter
    Stewart must've seen a lot of pornography in order to be such
    an expert on distinguishing it.

    The above merely to illustrate that experts in any persuasion
    seldom agree on everything; if they did -- they couldn't be
